Wood-Mizer Expands Product Range with Introduction of CNC Machines

Wood-Mizer has developed an advanced line of CNC (computer numerically controlled) machines to provide maximum performance, precision, and fully automatic processing of wood, plastic, composites, and light alloys.

The Wood-Mizer CNC machine range includes:

•    CNC5003, 3 and 4 axis machine center with vacuum table
•    CNC5005, 5 axis machine center with vacuum table
•    CNC6003, large and heavy-duty 3 and 4 axis machine center with vacuum table
•    CNC6005, large and heavy-duty 5 axis machine center with vacuum table
•    CNC7000, beam and log machine center, 8 axis with automated material handling
•    CNC8000, heavy-duty beam and log machine center, 6 axis with automated material handling

The Wood-Mizer CNC machines are designed as highly flexible machining centers that can be equipped with optional add-ons and functionalities, including a range of CNC aggregates, CAM software compatibility, an oscillating knife head, extra vacuum pads and plates, protective gates/light curtains around the machine, lasers for better material positioning, and more.

The machining centers are manufactured from the highest-grade components combined with industry-leading numerical controllers.

"Throughout our history, Wood-Mizer has been committed to providing the best quality equipment to process logs into finished wood products,” said Magnus Fransson, Wood-Mizer CNC Machines Product Manager. “The design of the Wood-Mizer CNC Machine product line has been proven by customers worldwide for more than a decade, and are now backed by the high-quality service and support network customers expect from Wood-Mizer."



The CNC5003 CNC Machine is the first product in the series, designed for automated processing of wood, plastic, composites, and light alloys in arts and crafts workshops, as well as in medium-to-large size companies producing sophisticated components for building kitchens, furniture, houses, and more.

The CNC5003 is based on a gantry design with a dual drive for stability and precision, a carousel 12-position automatic tool changer mounted to the gantry for fast tool changes, and a multi-zone vacuum nesting table for secure and flexible material positioning.




The machining center has a powerful electro spindle assisted by digital servos with high resolution for accuracy and minimum vibration.  




All operations are supervised from a movable operator panel with the renowned Fanuc controller for advanced functionality and lifetime parts availability. In addition, the operator panel offers an interface for PC and CAM software and a built-in server controller.



The 3-axis fast and precisely moving head operates across a sizeable multi-zone vacuum table, which allows for processing flat material with maximum dimensions of 3000 x 1500 mm. The table is built in six zones with 216 individual vacuum points to provide a wide variety of configurations. The spindle is equipped with a reliable and highly efficient dust extraction system to maintain a clean work environment.



CNC5003 CNC Machine Specifications:
•    Operating area – 3080 x 1540 x 200 mm
•    Material dimensions: 3000 x 1500 mm
•    Speed (x/y/z) – 60 x 30 x 15 m/min
•    Spindle motor with tool change – 11 kW at 24,000 rpm
•    Tool change – 12-tool rotating carousel
•    Vacuum pump – 4 kW (or 5.5 kW)
•    Vacuum pump capacity– 126 m3/h at 0.9 bar

“It is possible to further increase the productivity of the CNC5003 with integrated material handling equipment. The machine can be expanded with a modular system for loading and unloading material, transforming it into a machining cell capable of automated processing of complete batches of material without employing the operator’s supervision,” explains Magnus Fransson.



The CNC5003 and other upcoming CNC machines from this line complement the Wood-Mizer equipment range by adding more precision and repeatability to the finishing process of wood products.
